Advancing Military Equipment, Vehicles, and Tools
The safety of military personnel and their ability to successfully complete missions relies on the equipment they use. Military operations require durable state-of-the-art technology—like heavy-duty vehicles, aircraft, and communications equipment—designed to work without failure in harsh conditions.
A variety of Teflon™ fluoropolymer products is used in diverse military applications, from military lenses and radar technology to all-terrain vehicles.
Teflon™ AF (amorphous fluoropolymer) resins can be fabricated into thin films, coatings, and smooth-surfaced products or molded into high-performance mechanical parts. Teflon™ AF resin is creep-resistant, stiff, and inert to chemical attack, making it an excellent choice for handling the intensive conditions faced by the military.
Teflon™ PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) coatings also deliver the results that demanding military applications require. Resistant to corrosive chemicals and able to withstand extreme heat and cold, these water-repellent, nonstick coatings are used in such military equipment as:
- Pneumatic cylinders
- Aircraft fuel pump systems
- Production tooling
